First off, for the record, no one does random thoughts posts better than Maine. Seriously. Any one of his combined random thoughts would make a kick ass post. I don't know how he does it. So, please, no comparing because you'd surely be let down here.

I had a pedicure today. One of life's best pleasures (relax, I said one of). Sitting back in the cushy chair with the back massager, feet soaking in nice hot bubbly water followed by a foot massage. Heaven. That is until someone's cell phone rings incessantly followed by an obnoxious one-sided conversation. Ladies (and gentlemen if you're so inclined), may I suggest for your own safety and that of your cell phone, that you best not sit next to me and let that happen.

Yesterday my daughter asked if she ate sunflower seeds and drank water if sunflowers would grow inside her.

So why the picture of Barack Obama you ask. Is it because I admire his politics? Or because he's an eloquent speaker and brilliant leader? Or is it because I'd like to see him run for president at the first appropriate opportunity? Yes, yes, and yes. Oh, and when I googled "random thoughts" images, this picture came up. I'm not sure if I should be impressed or depressed.

I'm thinking of getting an exfoliation as soon as I grow some leaves. Sunflower seeds and water.

Doug - that was a strange as your icon.

so what's the answer about the sunflower thing???
an IT geek wants to know. :)

Mike - I'm thinking not, but I can't be sure. I wonder what the gestation period would be. Any theories?

The sunflower would need sunlight. No go.

I like Obama. He seems to have a number of the tools for the job, and enough people seem to like him that he might actually stand a chance at getting elected someday.

Although, I'm afraid to see him run. Really afraid. To be honest, I really don't want to know just how many people are out there that wouldn't vote for him just because he's black.

Like, if the results came in, and he got a disproportionally low number of votes compared to what the polls had projected... man, that'd be a real punch in the gut. I want to believe that wouldn't happen in America in 2008/2012. And if it did happen, well... that's just a reality I don't want to wake up to.

Oh, and I'd think the sunflower might also need fertilizer/compost and to not be covered in stomach acid to foster some germination.

Maine - Sunlight. Right. But just imagine if the seeds didn't reject the stomache acid and it worked in lieu of actual fertilizer (which methinks wouldn't be very tasty unless of course you're on Dog Eat Dog or Survivor -- those chumps will eat ANYTHING!). It'd be a whole new species of flower (are flowers species?). Why, it'd be the non-feces species!

I amuse myself.

Sorry, Maine, I forgot to address your Obama comments. It is despicable that there are still people that would pass over a solid candidate just because of the color of his skin. Just as I hold contempt for those who won't vote for a woman, just because she is one. However, there've been reports that Oprah could change all that. Could you imagine Oprah being president? For starters, she'd have to seriously downsize her home.

What, that isn't Cuba Gooding? Oops.

I always figured you for a foot fetish. "This little piggy went to the peace rally..."

I like Osama, straight line Democrat and he is an awesome speaker. Of course there are still people that wouldn't vote for hime because he is black but I hate to say this I think there are more people who would not vote for a women because of her gender.

Sunflower seed for eating only.

Oprah would get a lot of votes. Just enough to scare somebody in rural Virginia to take some serious action. A wise Oprah would make sure somebody always started her car for her.

OK, ignoring the factors of acid and fertilizer, you'd get a very weird looking plant. In the absense of light, it'd be pale, and it'd probably never actually flower. Just grow all over the stomach like a vine, and siphon nutrients off of whatever its host ate like a parasite.

Tell your daughter she's inveted a monster.

for satans sake, not Oprah!

Alice - As sad as it sounds, a woman would stand a better chance if she had a solid balance of wholesome female appeal (for the conservatives) and apparent but not too abrasive intelligence and just the right amount of progressive ideas. I guess there are personality caveats associated with "traditional" candidates, but I agree there seem to be more for women.

Maine - I'm an Oprah fan, so I'm sure you're not referring to me. ;) And let me see if I've got this straight. You want me to tell my daughter, who's still not sure that monsters don't really exist, that she's actually created one and it's growing inside her.

Araider - I bet she'd send you tx to her annual give lots of expensive shit away episode to swing your vote. And you know you're taking me with you!

In that case Sar,
I'll vote for her

Obama: eloquent speaker, definitely yes.

But brilliant leader? Oh please. Has he really done anything of significance yet? I mean, besides being a great speaker (check!.. we mentioned that already), being African American (a bonus there), being young (yep), and reasonably attractive (though I don't see it, personally).

Or are we just saying he's a good leader 'cuz he hasn't screwed up royally yet, like most of his Senate colleagues? Talk about setting the bar really low! :)

Alright, Ariader, I'm holding you to that.

TLM, I just love when you make my argument for me. :)
